School's out and so is the sun, prime season for family vacations.  Whether your vacationing to an exotic destination or exploring the great outdoors, food will be an essential part of the plan.  

While the majority of your planning will be dedicated to meal prep, try to make a valiant effort toward healthy snacking options as well.  Planning for healthy snacks can help satisfy hunger and cravings while on the road and keep you moving towards your daily food group goals.  

Healthy snacking can be easy. With a little prep and planning your family can achieve their health goals even while on the road. Consider these easy AND healthy snack solutions on your next family adventure:

BUILD YOUR OWN - make your own trail mix with unsalted nuts and add-ins such as seeds, dried fruit, popcorn or a sprinkle of chocolate chips.

PORTION DISTORTION - plan ahead and portion snack foods into baggies or containers so they're ready to grab-n-go when you need them.

COOL IT - bring along a small cooler and frozen gel packs to keep yogurts, sting cheese, hard boiled eggs, and fresh cut fruit chilled along the drive for a fresh cool treat along the way.

VIBRANT VIBES - cut and portion out fresh veggies like bell peppers, carrots, cucumbers spears and cherry tomatoes for a little crunchy indulgence.

"DRIED" AND TRUE - keep dried foods like jerky and fruit on hand, for a low maintenance health packed treat to stay fueled and energized along your journey.

Enjoy your summer vacations and feed your body the fuel it needs to keep you healthy.  HAPPY VACATIONING!
